Sample text

Peace is just ,simply peace. Nothiqg takes place. We simply quiet the whole thing and at the same time things become very clear. That seems to be the definition of peace. Thank you. We could discuss the whole thing if you would like. QUESTION: Joe asked me to ask you to repeat the four dharmas. RINPOC:HE: Oh yeah? He did? Well, give the microphone to him. He could ask for himself. Q: [Joe] Would you just repeat the four mantras? R: Yes, gladly. All composite stuff is impermanent; anything at the gross level is suffering; all dharmas are ego less; and nirvana is peace.

And if we could build up the paranoia, what we are doing here is really a complete description of insanity. At the moment we are going to sleep in order to get rest for tomorrow. So we are wasting time right now as well. Q: You were talking about the relationship between the mode of transportation, the journey maker and the attitude to the road itself. And then you said that there had to be some understanding of the road and the way the vehicle worked, and some relationship between the speed that the driver could go and the speed of the vehicle.

Since you have no God, no doctrine, no dogma, why? Q: Love? R: What does that mean? 40 Q: I would say that there would even be a spontaneous desire to help someone who is sad, you know. Just because, well, there are bad vibes around. It is like sweeping up a room with dust in it. Or maybe, to put it at the grossest level, it is sort of natural, like mother love, or brotherly love, just an extension from the family setup. Now I will say this, that it doesn't get me off. It doesn't get me off, but it is a continual barrier.
